ASSAM FISH RECIPE

 

In Asia, we are blessed with lots of fragrant herbs to make Assam curry, which also goes very well with snapper. In this recipe, we highly recommend using red snapper, golden snapper or batang. It can also be done with various types of fish heads.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins

Servings: 2-4, depending on the number of other dishes

Ingredients:

1 fish head or 2-3 fish steaks

2 stalks of lemon grass

2 stalks of ginger flower, with stalks sliced

3 shallots, finely sliced

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

1 tablespoon of balachan (shrimp paste)

fish curry mix (you can get this from the supermarket or at the wet market)

4 lady's fingers

1 tomato (cut into wedges)

3 sprigs of mint leaves

oil

Directions:

1. Pound the balachan with a mortar and pestle. Fry the balachan until fragrant.
2. In a pot, add the fish curry mix and shallots. Fry gently over low heat.
3. Add the balachan, lemongrass, garlic, tomatoes and lady's fingers.
4. Add 2 cups of water.
5. Leave to boil.
6. Put the fish slices or fish heads into the boiling mixture.
7. Add the ginger flower.
8. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar (you may vary the quantity according to the level of sweetness preferred).
9. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes or until fish is cooked.
10. Serve hot with rice.

Highly Recommend but not for babies

Great subtle taste, really fresh and not at all like the European mackerel. Lovely texture too, cooks up very soft and flakes in large pieces. However I ordered the fish filleted and there were quite a lot of bones, it's ok for me but I definitely would not recommend to serve to toddlers or babies because of this.

yummy n easy to work with

Great tasting fish!

whole family loved the taste of this fish. Feels great to know its also sustainably raised. Will be ordering this again.

Fresh Scallops

Prepared the hotate in sashimi style with uni and ikura. The smooth and tender texture of the hotate combined well with the creaminess of the uni balanced by the crunch of the ikura. Added small strips of Japanese cucumber to lighten the palate. Overall super satisfied with the purchase.

Well Received!

Will buy again.
